You should log everything and analyze anything. People trying to brute your sites and servers. All of these are relevant incidents as they pose a threat.

It's not relevant to say to what is an incident, as every attempt might be a relevant event some time. What is important is to catalog them with different levels. Some threats pose greater danger than others. Some of them might contain a lot of "normal behavior". The thing is that some things only become relevant after analyzing over a longer period of time. You might notice one attacker is doing his best extra hard to get in. You might get a hacked server and then you'd have to be able to go back and look for related security events to learn from the incident.
